E-mail from a west side cop:
- Monday morning, 010 had 14 crossing guards call off. That's 14 crossings that had to be covered by coppers. 010 only has 12 beat cars, a few rapids, and some specialty cars up on days. Dispatch did what they had to do, downed the District and put in the backlog.
So 010 had no cars up. If there was a shooting or a legit robbery/burglary/domestic, there was no one to send. I thought Garry was all about keeping cars up and available for jobs?
And that's just one district. Any idea if the rest of the districts suffered similar shortages? Safe Passage couldn't cover anything? Parent Patrols? But we're up to strength!
